The Fine Print:
Payment is due for your convention registration at the time of purchase; however, you may purchase a supporting membership by the deadline, and upgrade later. Primary adult, additional adult, and child memberships all count; members-in-tow do not (but they don’t cost anything either).

Making a hotel reservation is free: you will not be charged anything by the hotel until you check in come August.

Early reservation special expires at 11:59 PM Central Standard Time on December 31, 2012.

Save the Date! A Middleton House Concert… With a Middleton performing! Marilyn Middleton Mellor will be performing at our home on October 20th, 2012.  She's been singing professionally for as long as I can remember, and impressing me (and many others, both professional and not) for that long as well. She's fronted rock bands, performed at Renn Faires, and toured on the traditional jazz and blues circuits in Great Britain and Europe. I can't recommend this house concert enough. Don't miss her!   Learn more about her at http://www.marilynmiddleton.co.uk

Sad to say, that this is so very very true.  I WISH fandom was more what it believed it was, than what it actually is.  Which isn't to say that ALL of fandom is this way. But somewhat like the folks who chastise the middle of the road Christians, or Muslims for not speaking out more against their fringe … it would be great if the whole fannish community expected more from its fringe members too ….

Geeks, you have a problem

So, I'm sure many of you have seen this image going around:

This image drew out my most head-patting, condescending side, I must admit. It's just so cute when delusion reaches these levels. Now, I've got a toe in some geek stuff, but mostly I watch the culture from the outside, and I have to say, from an outside perspective, it actually looks like geek culture has allowed a form of entrenched and vicious misogyny to flourish. It's not the majority or anything like that, bu…

Reshared post from Jennifer Ouellette

I really loved this movie … one of the things that I loved is that it WASN'T really about romance at all, and more about personal actualization and finding ones priorities. I find it frustrating that people equate not wanting to get married at the earliest possible age to "may be gay".

When I like to look for gay subtext in cultural artifacts, I tend to look for actual sexualized interactions between characters, rather than equating whether or not someone conforms to gender stereoty…

Female Michigan legislators to perform Vagina Monologues at their capitol building

This is such a fantastic response to a mind-numbingly stupid controversy. For those of you who aren’t up to date, Michigan legislators barred Rep. Lisa Brown (D) from speaking in the House after she used the word “vagina” during a debate on an anti-abortion bill. Yes, people are losing their shit over the word “vagina”:
“That comment would be very inappropriate,” [Rep. Rick Johnson (R)] said. “You have young children? Is that something you want them to hear from your state rep?”
Actually, yea…

"Look, here’s the deal: It doesn’t matter if you think you’re a nice person. And it doesn’t matter if your tone, attitude, sentiments and facial expressions are all very sweet, kindly and sympathetic-seeming. If you’re opposing legal equality, then you don’t get to be nice. Opposing legal equality is not nice and it cannot be done nicely."

You can’t deny people their rights and be nice about it

“The Theological Is Personal,” Dianna Anderson writes. She’s talking here specifically about the perennial controversy over how much equality women are to be allowed in the church, but her comments apply just as much to the “debate” over how much equality LGBT people are to be allowed in the church, and to the “debates” about how much equality both women and LGBT people are to be allowed in society as a whole: Here’s the thing we need to always remember in the discussion of complementarian th…

Sometimes I look a resumes and I want to cry.

Seriously people, when we say excellent communication skills, we mean, both written and verbal (400 spelling and grammar errors in your initial impression will not get you hired).

When we say 3 years of experience, we mean doing something at least SIMILAR to the job described in the job description.
